Hi, does any one else have this problem or hvae any ideas?

I have boy twins 3 and a half and although they adore each other, play together well and share well, they seem to just love playing really roughly with each other 0 wrestling, pulling, pushing - all goo natured and laughing all the way (until as often happens it goes too far and it ends in tears).

I do try to stop it before it escalates, I try time out, I try to explain that I dont want them to get hurt etc etc but it doesnt seem to stop them. I also tried explaining when they get wound up that if it ends it tears then whoever gets hurt doesnt get and sympathy from me as I've already told them to calm it down.
I kind of think (hope) they'll grow out of it and as they aren't doing it in a nasty way it doesnt worry me too much (although I'd like it to stop)
They're pretty well behave in most other ways so shoud I be worried?

Nursery think yes - they really hate iteven though other kids are never involved - its a sibling thing it seems, but we've now been called into a meeting to sad

It's a boy thing. Mine are still doing it at 4 1/2!!

I think you should talk to them about not doing it at nursery, and that the teachers don't like it.

Daddy gets involved with ours and they all have a big play fight, seems to get it out of their systems, but keeps it safe as he is keeping an eye on how rough! And they tend to do it on the squishy sofa so not usually too bad!

My threads are missing from this topic. Can anyone advise if I did anything wrong? Not sure what's going on. Very much hope I haven't offended anyone. Can't think how. Thanks.

OK - just figured it out - sorry! I responded through Behaviour/Development section - not the multiple births!!!
